Is that the snap ring that holds the sleeve in place where the rod joins the piston?

You're doing better than I am but at least I'm still making headway. I've assembled most of the pieces in the head. I'm still looking for a camshaft and have not ordered the pieces for the timing chain yet. My better half told me I need to spread the cost of this out a little so I figure I'll do a little each month.

Yep.

I'm not cut out for this stuff. I'm too impatient. I have been making a lot of "mods" from spare parts in the garage. Hopefully the thing makes it. May need to take a nice sized backpack to carry all the parts that fall off.

Anyone gone to Bob's to see if they've got pitbike parts there? I haven't been in a while.

I want to say she'd blow the budget, but maybe "budget" is the wrong word to use.

I've been wanting to sell this Red Baron pit bike set up for quite sometime now. Just to lazy to put up a ad in FM.

Wheels, tank and rear shock are not for sale.

This set up, with a donor Honda 50 and a rear shock...could be a...winning set up.

PM me for more details and price.

After reading this, I made darn sure that I put both of them in place when replacing the piston head today. Trouble was, I kept shooting the first one across the garage and somehow I found it both times. (Maybe I should go buy a lottery ticket.) After that, I decided to tie fishing line onto them so if they tried to take flight again, they wouldn't get very far. Those suckers were a pain in the butt to get down in that little groove.

so nothing on this POS wants to work properly.

Question: how do I find out what pitch chain I need for a certain sprocket. The sprocket that came with the rear wheel that I just bought is not the same as the chain I had (which is a 420 and the most common pitbike size). I haven't a clue what chain goes with it and it's not stamped with anything. I tried to simply swap out the sprocket but the bolt pattern is different.


To top things off the rear brake caliper wasn't working. I took it entirely apart and spent quite a bit of time bleeding it. finally got it working. Was exited to show my exchange student my progress and when I went to plunge the master I hear a distinct sucking sound. FACK! I had the bleeder nipple open.

fml.

I've got my engine all put back together and now I've got to wait until next month for the next release of funds.

Update!!

Cyber and I will be running this 2up on his DRZ. I'll sit behind him and operate the shifter and rear brake and he'll have control of the handlebars. Does that sound fair??

Soooooooo,
Cyber is the football???
I think the DRZ disqualifies you. Now, if you do it on a 50, that would be a sight. We might have to change the rating of this thread from R to X.

I had this poor little 70 torn so far down, I figured I might as well take it the rest of the way... off to be sandblasted and repainted.


I had to cut the tires off as they were fused as one with the rims.
